Shamanism and Life with Martin Brennan

What are the powerful and precise teachings about living life that we learn from the practice of shamanism? Our most popular guest, Martin Brennan, joins shaman and host, Christina Pratt, to share the universal and important life lessons he has learned from shamanism.

Join us this week Martin’s list of the five things necessary for a robust and rich life filled with laughter, good work, and good relationship.  1. The balance of focus and surrender, humility and empowerment needed for successful shamanic journeying is precisely the stance needed to enter in to right relationship with others and ultimately the self.  2. Sacrifice is essential to engage spirit in the discovery of your true calling.  3. If it’s worth doing, it’s worth doing in ritual, which allows depth in transformation and expression. 4. There is incredible power in the spirit world to help you, but you must ask.  And finally, use your life to transform you; that’s what its there for. This week we continue the summer “blockbuster” series as we look into what shamanism has to teach us about the big issues—death, life, love and sex.
